Dear classic car enthusiast,
In October yours truly has tested and photographed a dozen newly arrived classic cars for sale, of which seven are presented in todays newsletter. You will find a beautiful and diverse selection of (sports) cars, starting with a 1923 Alvis 10/40 and ending with a 1973 Audi 100 S Coupé!
I have also photographed restoration projects at Amicale Facel Holland and at Classic Job. You will find an update on the impressive Facel Vega Facel II restoration at AFH and you will be introduced to two new restoration projects at Classic Job!
Furthermore, newly refurbished vintage original auto radios, auxiliary spot and fog lamps, and special classic car accessories were added to our Classentials web-shop!

At Amicale Facel Holland the photo report of the 1962 Facel Vega Facel II restoration was updated this week. After completion of the sheet metal works the body was dipped in a KTL 'bath' to be protected against corrosion inside and out. The KTL coating protrudes into every seam and cavity of the metal construction. The bodywork was smoothened and is ready to be painted.
The mechanical parts and the chassis were fully restored and overhauled. In the photo report you can admire the rolling chassis in full glory! After the body has received new paint, the chassis and the body can be 'married' again.
